A beautiful carpet can have the same awe-inspiring impact as a piece of artwork. Just as the simple white walls of a gallery best emphasize a painting, the elegant, geometric designs of Persian carpets work best in rooms that are otherwise minimally decorated. For a more hippie style, a funky, embellished carpet can create a cool interior, whereas synthetic animal prints, like zebra, are better suited to more modern dwellings. For the ultimate in luxury, choose a homemade silk carpet with unbeatable softness. Like picking out the perfect piece of artwork, it takes time to find the perfect carpet. However, your patience will always be rewarded!
